Sawhorse house made by Edmund

From Edmund
Hello. I made a pair of these saw horses last summer , using your plans.
I used tanalised timber - 95 x 45 for the legs, 145 x 45 for the tops and 18mm ply for the ends. 75mm ring nails to attach the legs , 50mm ring nails for the ends and lots of P/U glue.
They are very sturdy , you can stand right on the ends and they will not tip.
I made a pair of saw horses years ago but did'nt splay the legs in both directions (probably put off by the compound mitres) - Don't go down this route, these are a lot sturdier and more stable.( Traditional designs always work the best) .
Very easy to make if you own a compound mitre saw. (for the leg cuts and the cutouts) .
I glued and nailed the legs on a flat bit of concrete, then put a concrete block on top while the glue set overnight, (in case the legs were a bit out) ,trimmed and cleaned them up the next day. Turned out alright.
